With Mai Charoenpura chopping things up in Meat Grinder, opening in Thai cinemas today, the timing seems right to mention the English-friendly DVD release of the actress' previous vehicle, Memory, also Memory Rak Lon or เมมโมรี่ รักหลอน, roughly "memory: haunted love").
When it was released in Malaysian and Singaporean cinemas last August and September, it got another title: Ghost House.
Busy actor Ananda Everingham co-stars in this twisty thriller. He plays a criminal psychologist who's put on the case of a possibly abusive mother (Mai) and her little girl. The girl says she's haunted by the spirit of a little boy, but the shrink, who's having trouble at home, starts falling for the mother and her womanly charms.
Torphong Tankamhaeng directed this drama, which is a mix of psychological thriller and bump-in-the-night ghost mystery.
The fiery Mai was nominated for a Suphanahongsa Award for her effort, as was her young co-star, Sun Khumpirannon. Don't click that awards link if you don't want to know the nature of the twist.
